I was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, but came to Texas in 2011 to attend Baylor University! I graduated from Baylor in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a minor in Religion. This past May, I graduated from The University of Texas in Austin with a Masters of Education in Language & Literacy. I'm so excited to be teaching English I and English III here at New Tech this year!
During my time at Baylor I worked on campus with New Student Programs, an office that facilitated events and opportunities for incoming freshmen and transfer students to feel welcomed. Needless to say, I love meeting new people, leadership development, and am big on school spirit! Something else that is important to me is traveling- I love leading trips for college students during spring break, and summer, to countries around the world to do service work and learn more about other cultures. When I'm not living and breathing English class, I love taking naps, playing with my friend's dogs, being outside with my husband, and trying new restaurants in Austin!
